Steve McClaren Leaves FC Twenteby Jack Kitson / 26 February 2013, 09:54Tweet
Steve McClaren has left Dutch side FC Twente following a poor run of results. The former England manager met with chairman Joop Munsterman after the club had failed to win a match since before Christmas, which ultimately has led to his second departure from the Stadium De Grolsch Veste.
McClaren first took charge of Twente back in 2008, leading them to their first league title in 2010. On the back of that impressive achievement he opted to part ways with the club and test his credentials in Germany at Vfl Wolfsburg. However, it proved to be a disappointing nine month spell, with the Bundesliga outfit dismissing McClaren.
The 51-year-old was then appointed the new boss of Championship side Nottingham Forest in June 2011 but lasted just 122 days. In an attempt to restore some pride to his tattered reputation McClaren chose to return to Twente in early 2012. He immediately made it his mission to win the league title for a second time but could only lead the club to a 6th place finish. He now leaves them fifth in the table and six point off league leaders PSV Eindhoven.
McClaren is currently priced at 20/1 to become the Next Manager of Leeds United.
